- Pattern: Rowe, Project Page
- Yarn: Cascade Eco in Latte (natural)
- Size: 43 1/2, with slightly different gauge than called for (see Queuesday for gauge woes) so there’s probably 3-5″ positive ease.
- Needle size: US6 for body, US5 for ribbing, and US4 for tubular CO
- Overall thoughts:
- I worked on it for a total of 88.5 hours. It’s assuredly not the longest project I’ve worked on, but man it was SO SATISFYING to be done. That being said…
- The sleeves are pretty long. Granted I knit them at least an inch longer than written (did the same 5″ ribbing as the fronts/back, instead of 4″ called for…), but they’re *still* long. They look good folded up, but the seam is a bit bothersome to me. Only to me, mind you, but hey it’s mine so I think it’s allowed to bother me. I digress.
- The body could stand to be a bit longer, for butt coverage.
- The ribbing is the coziest thing ever. 8″ is a lot of ribbing (398 sts per row!) but it was so worth it. And the crochet join to the selvage row is genius.
- For never having done a seamed sweater before, I am pleased with the result. I think sewing set-in sleeves before gave me a bit of an advantage in the “how does this WORK?” variety.
- Cozy cozy cozy. I put it on before weaving in ends and wore it for a good hour before I was willing to take it off again.
Now what you’ve all been waiting for…
